Profile

We have been trading since 1999, offering a host of services to a wide variety of clients within the leisure, hospitality and tourism sectors. During this time we have undertaken projects for organisations such as the Royal Household, Blenheim Palace , Historic Royal Palaces , Longleat plus hotel, nightclub and restaurant chains amongst others. For some clients we provide internal audit services and undertake a programme of compliance audits each year. For other clients we undertake internal financial control risk assessments and/or train management in good financial control and much more.

 

 


 

 

Our thirty years experience gives an opportunity to offer a unique service to all companies in these sectors. It is particularly useful to companies who require an internal audit function but cannot justify a full-time facility, or for a company just wanting an ad hoc and independent risk assessment by an experienced person who is familiar with their industry. In addition, because we have considerable expertise in stock control, we are able to offer additional help to resolve issues such as stock shrinkage, provide advice on computerised revenue capture systems and a lot more. These services are aimed at existing businesses that have grown to a size that they need internal audit, plus others that want to out-task their internal audit and also new ventures where the new owners may be lacking the relevant experience in good internal financial control.


"As Leisure Risk's managing consultant, I am an independent financial risk expert, specialising in all aspects of internal financial control, especially internal audit. I have over thirty years experience in the leisure, hospitality & tourism industries.

During that time I worked for Horizon Holidays, the Forte Hotel Group and First Leisure Corporation Plc where I was their Internal Audit Manager with responsibility for a team of Auditors and the audit coverage of eight separate trading divisions totalling over one hundred and fifty businesses. These ranged from hotels to nightclubs, from piers to theatres, restaurants to day visitor attractions, arcades to marinas and many more.

I am a member of the Institute of Internal 11A Link Auditors , and a member of the Institute of Hospitality 10H Link."
